CORSIA is coming!

Are you ready?

CORSIA Business and Commercial Aviation

Do you operate internationally? If so, then by February 28, 2019 you may need to comply with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation.

Learn how we can help with Jeppesen Emissions Reporter.

What is CORSIA?

CORSIA is a market-based measure to track and offset carbon emissions on a global scale, with a goal of carbon neutral growth from 2020. This initiative will be implemented in a phased approached. Emissions monitoring, reporting and verification is mandatory for all operators meeting the eligibility criteria.

Aviation co2 Emissions Regulations

Who does this affect?

Due to the global nature of CORSIA, it is highly likely that if you operate internationally, you will be affected by CORSIA. If you meet the criteria below, you likely qualify.

5,700 kg
Maximum Takeoff Weight
Tonnes of CO2 emitted annually on international routes
Will have to begin reporting emissions Jan 1, 2019

Check to see if you qualify for CORSIA

When will this begin?

CORSIA will have a phased implementation, but all operators that qualify should have a monitoring plan in place by Feb. 28, 2019. The phased plan includes two years of baseline monitoring and reporting, a pilot phase where some countries may require carbon offsetting, and first and second phases, where more countries will be included in the offsetting part of the program. Check here for an up-to-date list of the participating countries:


Feb. 28, 2019
Monitoring Plans in Place

All aircraft operators that qualify should submit a monitoring plan by February 28, 2019.

2019 - 2020
Baseline Years

Determine the global CO2 emissions from international aviation on which the scheme is based.

2021 - 2023
Pilot Phase

States choose to offset based on either previous year’s performance or on the baseline year

2024 - 2026
First Phase

The offset must be based on the previous year’s performance

2027 - 2035
Second Phase

Mandatory participation for states meeting certain criteria related to their level of aviation activities. See ICAO for exact requirements and exemptions.

Check if you are required to comply with CORSIA Offsetting Requirements:

You need to comply with CORSIA requirement only for flights between two participating countries.

If you are flying in or out of an EU/ECC country you will also need to comply with EU-ETS requirements.
